Cumbria Woodland's vision is for every woodland in Cumbria and beyond to thrive ecologically and economically for the benefit of all. We support cutting edge research, individual training, government-level strategy and multi-million-pound projects, working in conjunction with woodland owners, researchers, environmental experts and corporate partners.
Strong partnerships form the foundations of the great work we do. We work with government agencies, researchers and not-for-profit organisations to grow, manage and protect the woodlands of Cumbria.
